Actually, we’re going to do those first steps …for you, and save you a bunch of time and dough (ha ha) along the way.

So, it’s with great pride that I would like to invite each of you to the grand unveiling of our new program, “HAUTEMEALZ.COM” ( Please go take a look, poke around, and tell us what you think!

Shortly after man discovered fire, he discovered that if you threw a chunk of meat on the coals, let it blacken, and then dug it out of the ashes…it tasted freakin’ awesome!

Since that evolutionary milestone, man has taken barbecue (or grilling, or smoking, or whatever you want to call it,) to the four corners of the world, and adapted it to the local ingredients he found there.

If it walked, swam, slithered, or flew, early man found a way to cook it over fire…and God bless him for it!

MEAT FIRE GOOD” takes you on a gastronomic tour of the globe, from classic Cuban and Indonesian dishes, to traditional Texas and Carolina BBQ, to the crisp, fresh flavors of the Pacific Northwest.

Perkins includes grill-top favorites, slow-smoked pit classics, and amazing side dishes; dozens of step-by-step crowd-pleasers like:

~ True Texas Brisket
~ Pacific Northwest Salmon

Happy National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day! (and a couple of recipes)

Let’s face it, when it comes to comfort food, a grilled cheese sandwich is pretty much the perfect food. Carbs + Fat = Awesome! The gooey center paired with crispy bread makes for one of the most sought after sandwiches in America.

Though it only contains three ingredients (bread, butter, and cheese), this uber-sandwich is quite versatile. It can be made in a frying pan, oven, outdoor grill, or toaster oven. It can also be eaten by itself or paired with soups such as tomato or chicken noodle.

This was one of a handful of dishes my mom could cook – untra traditional with cheese, butter, and white bread. Given our station in life (ie: industrial bricks of government cheese) this was a common menu item, often for days at a time, lol, but I never got tired of it.

Our nation has the food and programs in place to end childhood hunger, but consider what we are up against: The stigmas and embarrassment that surround hunger, the challenges presented by access to healthy food, and the struggle to connect children with the resources they need to thrive.

Together, with your support, we can put an end to childhood hunger. Will you join us in the No Kid Hungry campaign?
